The identification of a novel, high frequency variant in the Cytochrome b gene in an isolated population of a rare fish, Spined Loach Cobitis taenia, in England: A population worth protecting?
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe spined loach Cobitis taenia, is listed as a protected species under Appendix 3 of the Bern Convention and Annex II of the European Council Directive (92/43/EEC) on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora. It is desirable therefore to understand the genetic diversity within European populations. In a molecular genetic analysis of the cytochrome b gene in Cobitis taenia from three sites in the upper reaches of the River Trent catchment, a novel high frequency variant was identified which has not been previously reported in any European or Non-European population.
